The private health-care-insurance companies are the cause of our health-care-insurance problems, not the solution. To really lower and control costs, we need Medicare for all. The public option is the compromise. Although private-enterprise competition works to reduce costs in other fields, it doesn't work for the health-care-insurance companies because they have no control over health-care costs. They can only add to those costs with their expensive bureaucracy, profit margins and excessive executive compensation.
